On Monday 20th May we hosted our annual Volunteer Celebration Evening in Bath to thank all of our volunteers for their amazing support over the years.
We have over 340 volunteers across the organisation in a variety of roles that support the day to day running of projects, help us raise funds and give some of our clients important social contact. We are deeply grateful to all of our fantastic volunteers! Together we are effecting real change and Julian House wouldn’t be able to run without their support.
From those that work in our hostel, our supported accommodation services and outreach teams, to those in our bike workshops, charity shops, admin and fundraising teams, we want to say a big thank you for your dedication, time and support.
The evening was kindly hosted by Boston Tea Party on Alfred Street in Bath, who also supplied a finger buffet for our volunteers and guests to enjoy. After an introduction from Natalie (our Volunteer Coordinator), Joy Saunders (Chair of Trustees) spoke about the impact our volunteers make to the organisation, before Amanda Movsesian (Team Leader of our Domestic Abuse Services) gave an update on our services and spoke about how we support women, children and men escaping domestic abuse.
The evening then continued with some fantastic live music from The ÆTHER, Douglas Joshua and Tallis Morris, who all donated their time for free, kindly organised by Max from the Bath Music Collective. Guests were also treated to live magic performances and demonstrations from local magician Mentazmo.
Thank you to everyone who came to the evening and thank you again for your continued support, help and time. It’s truly appreciated.
